The Invitational Summer Institute
The Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project (SLWP) is a National Writing Project (NWP) site that has been offering Invitational Summer Institutes and Advanced Institutes since 1992 at Southeastern Louisiana University. Summer Institute Fellows from across the curriculum and all grade levels come together in a comfortable setting to write, to study the teaching of writing, and to share their own best practices in the teaching of writing.
How Is the Invitational Summer Institute Special?
A special feature of this year’s Institute is our third annual Writing Retreat in the French Quarter, where Summer Fellows join other SLWP and NWP teachers for five days of writing, workshops, writing marathons, and professional discussions of teaching writing in one of the world’s best cities for writers.
